NO data bytes OPTION in APP

                                                    I am a NEW fido CUSTOMER.

 

first downloaded the app 13 days ago and I remember seeing the Databytes option on the main screen.

when I updated the app about 8 days ago on my iphone 6s ios 10.3
my data bytes option disappeared....

I dont even have the option to shake anymore everything is gone.

 

PS: yes I have read about 10 forums about this issue and there are none that are really being treated just the same advice.

 

PPS: I have contacted customer service and they sent me a link on how to set it up.....No help.

Hey @MickeyBriggz 

 

Good job on the research! We're always glad to help you out here on the community. Smiley

 

The first thing that comes to mind when reading your post is that you need to update your iPhone software to the latest version of iOS: 11.4

 

If you've got the latest version of the Fido My Account app but your software is not up-to-date, that can create an conflict in the execution of the app.

 

Try that before anything else and let us know how it goes!

Re: NO data bytes OPTION in APP

I'm having the same issue - there is no Data bytes banner for me in the app. A few notes:

 

  • My app is up-to-date
  • My iOS is up-to-date
  • I am accessing the app from the Fido network (not wifi)

Please help!

 

Thanks Smiley

Hey @allylaa

 

Welcome to the Community!

 

Thanks for all the info, it helps Smiley

 

What device are you using exactly?

 

And when logging on the Fido App, if you try to hit the "Remember Me" button, do you get the same result after logging?

I'm using an iPhone 6. I tried the Remember Me button, but it didn't work.

Re: NO data bytes OPTION in APP

Thanks for confirming! 

 

Are you able to access all other features on the app such as the invoices? 

 

Also, if you go in the "More" tab, do you see the "My Data Bytes History" banner there? 

 

Let me know!

I can see the bill overview, yes. I don’t see anything about data bytes in the More section or anywhere else in the app, though

Thanks for the info @allylaa Smiley

 

Did you ever use a Data Byte before?

 

If yes, when is the last time you used one?

 

We might have to take a direct look at your account for that so you can definitely contact us for that

 

We can also send you a PM on here if you prefer


Let us know!

Re: NO data bytes OPTION in APP

Thanks for the update @MickeyBriggz!

 

Have you also confirmed if you have a Fido Pulse plan? Data Bytes is exclusively offered on Pulse plans only.

 

I'll be sending a PM your way so we can have a closer look at this.

 

Talk to you soon Smiley

NO data bytes OPTION in APP

FIDO APP - NO DATA BYTES OPTION

 

I just tried logging into my Fido app to use my data bytes. Right after I had logged in, this pop up said "unable to use data bytes at this time. Try again later." The pop up wouldn't go away, and kept popping up so fast that it just didn't go away!! I uninstalled the app updates and reinstalled it. The app acted like I was a new customer, asking me to authenticate my phone. I got past that only to find the data bytes option still not there, and then those same pop ups came back AGAIN!!! Does anyone know how to fix this problem?? I tried calling tech support but it's closed (Canada Day Holiday weekend) and also went to Fido.ca and used Fido Chat to only be told to call tech support again... PLEASE HELP ME! I am so sick of paying for things that Fido can't make available to me. This kind of stuff just keeps on happening to me in regards to this app. What can I do?!?

Re: NO data bytes OPTION in APP

Hello, I am having that same issue right now. Fido didn't help me either. I updated the app, but I was also getting a pop up that said my data bytes are not available or I cannot connect to data bytes at this time and to try again later. And if I get it to do away, the option for the data bytes isn't even there anymore.. can u help me please?

Please help me with this
